While Doctor Sleep is more a sequel to Stephen King’s The Shining book than Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 masterpiece (there are some major differences), it’s nonetheless one of the biggest scale horror films we’ve seen in recent years. Ewan McGregor (!!) plays a grown-up version of Danny Torrance, who finds a young girl with similar powers to himself. A cult gets involved, and things get wild.
Mike Flanagan (The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Gerald’s Game) is becoming a horror master in his own right, and HBO Max subscribers have the option of checking out the theatrical version of Doctor Sleep or the Director’s Cut. Both are worth your time.
